CTG Foundation is a 501(c)(3) designated non-profit organization dedicated to helping underprivileged children and their families live successfully and joyfully. We help children from birth to age 22, both in the U.S. and Internationally.
Brian Reynolds, a business owner, participated in a sustainable clean water project in a small pacific fishing village called El Transito in Nicaragua in 2017. During his visit to Nicaragua, he was deeply moved by the sight of entire villages and towns suffering from extreme poverty. Poverty so extreme that kids were drinking contaminated water to survive.
Greatly dismayed, Brian shared his experience in Nicaragua with one of his business partners, Dennis Yoon. Coincidentally, Brian and Dennis discovered that they both shared similar passions for helping children to break the cycle of poverty. Six months after their conversation, CTG Foundation was founded by the two business partners with the common goal of helping underprivileged children to learn positive and lasting life skills to overcome a generational cycle of poverty.
We take a unique approach to help children break away from poverty. Rather than providing simple financial aid, we take a holistic, relational, and long-term approach. We find one or two underprivileged communities at a time through our network of charity organizations and actively work with local institutions and charitable organizations supporting clean water and nourishment projects, student scholarships, school financial assistance, mentoring and leadership training for children. This method enables us to better solve the root cause of poverty by staying close to the entire community and enabling the families and local institutions to support the kids.
Sustainable Clean Water Projects
Clean water is a scarce natural resource in most of Nicaragua along with other 3rd world countries. Drilling sustainable, clean, deep water wells provides this most basic necessity in life for those in need. When clean water is made consistently accessible, the door opens for multiple building blocks which can then be put in place by the hardworking people. This is the tip of the spear to generating life and a thriving community of men, women and children.
CTG Foundation resources and teaches the craft of planting and growing sustainable food sources. This provides both the nourishment as well as commerce necessary to generate a healthy lifestyle for families.
Academic and Athletic Scholarships
CTG Foundation scholarships are provided by entering into a partnership with local school teachers, principals, coaches and community leaders. These scholarships range from donations of necessary school materials and sports equipment for those who partner with academic mentorship programs all the way up to direct financial assistance provided for higher education.
Local Job Creation
All of the projects which CTG Foundation enters into are about enabling local economies to grow from within and thrive. The projects range from the complexities of local teams being employed and working alongside of us when drilling a deep water well or building and repairing grade schools and churches to the simplest of gestures such as supporting a local textile merchant and local hostels and restaurants who employ single women and mothers to craft quality products and earn a respectable quality living. In most cases these women go on to become land owners and provide a quality home environment and deserved education for their children.
School Financial Assistance
Many youth in 3rd world regions are in a positive movement in which they are becoming their first-in-family to graduate from high school. By providing financial assistance to these dedicated students and their mentors, CTG Foundation is helping them to take the next steps and enter into Universities and Trade Schools which will generate the opportunity for them to develop a successful career in the medical, mechanical or service industry.
Mentoring and leadership training
By remaining directly involved and taking teams into the regions where CTG Foundation and our partners are providing financial and project based assistance we are given a unique opportunity to mentor and train youth. Our teams plan and execute events and activities starting with the youngest of ages in grade school by providing after-school activities such as VBS (Vacation Bible School), sports programs, games and tutoring. We also intersect with teenagers and young adults by partnering with local businesses and merchants who provide internship, employment and mentoring programs.
